Jazz Classes

LEADING EDGE ACADEMY OF DANCE

Jazz dance is a vibrant and ever-evolving art form that originates from African dance styles. Rooted in rhythmic expression and precise technique, jazz is a thrilling style that showcases passion and life. With its foundation in the rhythms of jazz music, the dance form brings a contagious energy to those who perform it.

Jazz encompasses a range of styles, from classical jazz of yesterday to modern music of today. Each class hones in on body isolations, encouraging individual expression and the development of personal style. The technical elements of jazz, such as controlling leaps, turns, and kicks, will be practiced across the floor, improving skills that a dancer can use in choreography.

The LEAD jazz dance syllabus partners with accomplished choreographers and teachers to ensure that students develop into well-rounded commercial and technical jazz dancers. By prioritizing examination grade syllabus, LEAD fosters a top-tier dance education for students.
